WELCOME TO CLASS 3
 
Class 3 consists  of Year 3 and Year 4 children.
 
Our aim  is to ensure that every child feels that they are part of a caring class. A class in which they feel confident enough to try new things without fear of failure. A class in which everybody has something to offer. Our aspiration is that the children in Class 3 will become self-motivated learners through a varied and exciting curriculum. Parents are always welcome in Class 3, whether to discuss their child's progress or to help on educational visits. We want Class 3 children to enjoy school and to look forward to the opportunities each new day offers.
 
Key Timings:
Homework - Handed out at the beginning of term. 
Times Table Rockstars - Tues/Thu 8:30-9:00 for Y3, Mon/Wed/Fri 8:30-9:00 for Y4 (times will be adjusted for children who have a temporary later arrival time).
Spellings - Issued on Mondays, practised every day in class, tested on Fridays.
 
Your child will need to read to an adult at home and have their Reading Record signed, daily if possible. 
 
Class 3's Home/School Link - Class toy
 
Our class toy is Monty the manatee. Monty the Manatee (the story) is a charming, uplifting tale which explores themes of bullying and friendship and emphasises the importance of being kind. Monty will also be teaching us a lot about looking after our world so that manatees and other animals can survive in their habitats. At the end of each week he will pick a child to go home with who has worked hard on being a superstar, both with their work and general manners. It would be lovely if your child could write a diary entry with an illustration or photograph so that we can share their experiences with the class.
 
IMAGINATIVE LEARNING PROJECT (ILP) Spring 2nd 2021 ~ Gods and Mortals
From nothingness came chaos; from chaos came air and water; from air and water came life. Then, rising majestically from the darkness, came Gaia, Mother Earth, a beacon of warmth and light. Discover a fantastical world full of mythical creatures and legendary heroes. Poseidon, Apollo, Artemis and Zeus reign almighty from Mount Olympus, watching mere mortals on dusty Athenian streets. Meet Theseus, the hero, and Helen of Troy, the beautiful face that launched a thousand ships. Explore the terrains of Greece, where in pure blue skies, the Sun scorches waxen wings and melts the fortunes of Icarus and Daedalus. Then decide your own fate when a mysterious box is found and stirs your curious mind.
